If you like retro platformers, do I have a game for you today. Witcheye, from the co-creator of the NES game The Great Gatsby, is an upcoming game that looks like a fantastic ode to classic NES games. You play as a witch who transforms into a flying eyeball to get back her stolen ingredients. And the way you play is you swipe to move the ball around and touch to stop, which is a very clever idea. And when you want to take out enemies, you bounce off of them like in Breakout. You can see the idea in action on our Upcoming Games forum thread; it looks like it's going to be great fun to play, and the art style is fantastic.

The game will come with over 50 levels, and each apparently has something unique. As the developer points out in our forums, he was inspired by the overstuffed feel of Super Mario Bros 3. He's hoping to get the game out in mid-2018, and I seriously can't wait for this one. Head over to our forum thread for more on the game as well as here to check out the in-depth developer's blog.

    I can never get bored of retro platformers, particularly that have any Metroidvania elements to them. This one looks great and I liked Satellina, so I'll be getting this when it comes out.

    I hope that there comes a Castlevania game to IOS especially the PS1version were you could fight the real boss in the clock tower and when you killed him you get a cutscene were you see the castle turned upside down and you could play the game but with more difficult enemies to beat it was so cool and something I still remember is the awesome music It fits perfectly with the overall feeling of the game 🧛🏻‍♂️🕸🧟‍♂️🕸🧟‍♀️🕸🦇🕸☠️
